    She looks to be a real BEAUTY. Based on previous completed build posted

    Kitty Hawk 1/48th scale Huey

    I will assess my own observations on the kit when I have one in hand. Based on my 15 years of experience with 1:1. I have a pretty clear picture of what is right/wrong with what is in plastic.

    You mean the 1/32 Revell, and the Monogram Uh-1B/C is a bang- up kit, even if it is alittle heavy on the panel lines and rivet details. I think I have over a dozen of this kit. You can really have a blast building and detailing this GEM. The level of the build is totally up to you. And as far as accuracy it's pretty DAMN good, hands down.Considering when this kit was made, it is notable that it is still in production and circulation. As well as the Italeri UH-1D/H My wheat penny cent

    Kamov Ka-27PL (HB 1/48)

    Gotta give USMC Kudos for that Brain Fart that took over 30 years to develop. Now we have the ABOMINATION CV-22

    Actually first time it's been done to this extent. Although the original UH-1 & AH-1 only shared rotors & engine

    Kitty Hawk 1/48th scale Huey

    Correct; The UH-1Y and AH-1Z share Main rotor,Tail Rotor,Tail Boom, Engines & drive line. Which means Less Tax $$$, and easier Logistics on board LSH

    Korean War Skyraiders

    Gary; The Skyraider is my most FAV fixed-wing. I have 28 Raiders kits. As for 48th you have (4) from ESCI,(3) from Italeri,(2) from Tamiya,(2) from Monogram. In plastic for Korean, u have AD-4,AD-4Q/N/L/W,AD-5. Tamiya's kits are Viet Nam era, where as all the others are Korean/Viet Nam. Revell /Monogram re-released the AD-5 about 4 years ago, which is the 4 seater. It has a lot of possibilities as far as convers. There are various update/conversion sets from Cobra,True details,Quickboost,Scale Aircraft Access.,and Aires. Also Metal landing gear is available. The major difference from Korea - Viet Nam era, is Cockpit,Ejection Seat,Guns,Doors(with/without),Air-Brakes,Pylons. Other than that converting from AD-3 thru AD-5, from any of the kits available is fairly easy. Surf Aircraft Resource Center for build articles to get a flavor. Good Luck and make sure you post progress. CHEERS!! Todd

    Kitty Hawk 1/48th scale Huey

    Correct!, I wasn't talking about anything else but the UH-1Y in 1/48th. The fuselage, is made up of nose,mid,tail boom, and engine covers,roof. Totally unlike any other Helo w/ side to side type fuselage parts

    Kitty Hawk 1/48th scale Huey

    Because I am Huey blood, from my begining of US Army service. I waited with MAXX ANTICIPATION for the Kittyhawk UH-1Y. I bought one, and I can HONESTLY say, GREAT job. I think the greatest challenge will be mating the multi piece fuselage, for acceptable results when complete. The Good point is that this approach of assembly, opens the ability to add more detail or mods for engines, or interior details. ALL in ALL GREAT KIT. Can't wait to get the AH-1Z
